The Week: July 3, 2013

Jul 3, 2013

I know, I know – it seems really early to do a weekly roundup, but tomorrow is Independence Day here in the states, and I already intend to be in a barbecue-induced coma on Friday, so I’m cutting things a little short (okay, fine, I’m cutting them really short).

I’ll be back next week, when I’ll conclude my tales from Boston and finally, FINALLY tell you all about Paris. And eclairs. And macarons. And all the other things I mashed into my mouth in a frenzy.

Until then, enjoy these links.

We might be celebrating tomorrow, but July 4th isn’t actually the day we declared independence.

The Colon Cancer Alliance is selling giant inflatable colons. In case you need one for your next family gathering or wedding.

It’s time to stop saying goodbye when we leave a party.

These 101 short stories will make your day.

Our favorite family-run Greek restaurant closed last Sunday. I’m absolutely in love with this photo a reporter took of us with one of the owners, Helen. She’s patting my stomach (like she always does) and telling us that we need to have a kid.

If you are stateside, then have a safe and wonderful Fourth of July. I’ll see you all next week.
